But the sound is kind of high pitched and it's such a short and snappy bark, you know a real "small dog bark"
The Dog Silencer™ uses a high-pitched ultrasound that is designed to simply "irritate" the dog. It is not designed to cause pain or harm to their ears (we compare it to someone dragging their fingernails on a blackboard). We do not recommend using the Dog Silencer™ with puppies under 1 year of age. Please consult your veterinarian before using this product with puppies. The sound from the Dog Silencer™, although irritating, is not designed to hinder 100% of your dog's barking. If your dog "needs" to bark, he can. The Dog Silencer™ will not train the dog to stop barking out of instinct (at an intruder for example).
Why dogs bark Dogs bark for many different reasons, but in most cases barking serves as a form of communication. Dog owners will generally recognise four different types of bark; warning, alarm, playful, and need. For instance, continuous fast barking is a warning, perhaps alerting that someone is entering their home territory, and long, drawn-out barks at a high pitch, with pauses between each one, indicate that a dog is in need and is possibly lonely.

The first and most obvious thing you will notice is the pitch of different sounds. The concept of how pitch influences meaning is very simple. In all of nature, big things tend to create lower pitch sounds. Tap on a tin cup and kick a water barrel and you will get a clear example of how size influences pitch. The pitch of a dog’s bark should be evaluated relative to its own bark and not all dogs. In other words, a deep bark for a Chihuaua will not be as deep as a high pitch bark from a Rottweiler. An American Pit Bull Terrier can have a very high pitch bark for its size so you have to evaluate it based on the individual dog.The bark is a treasure trove of information regarding our dogs’ mental state. Deciphering how high pitched, rapid, prolonged and forceful the barking is tells us many things about what your dog is trying to “say.”If you have a dog that keeps you up at night, gets you in trouble with your neighbors or you are just tired of hearing all of the time, then BarkWise is what you need. NOT just another Dog Collar, BarkWise emits a high frequency sound pulse in direct response to your dog's barking. The powerful sound is inaudible to humans yet disrupts the barking patterns of your dog without causing pain or injury to your pet. BarkWise doesn't use Electric Shocks to control behavior, rather it uses the high pitched sounds to train your dog not to bark. These sounds interrupt the barking without hurting your dog. The dog will usually learn quickly to associate barking with the unpleasant sound, and this will reduce or completely eliminate "nuisance" barking. BarkWise is a pet friendly, safe and effective way to train your pet. The Ultimate Dog Silencer emits a high-pitch ultrasonic (inaudible) sound frequency in response to the dog's barking. Our proprietary Bark Recognition Technology™ detects barking over all other external sounds. The Ultimate Dog Silencer ensures the sound frequencies only activate while the dog barks and turns off the precise moment the dog stops barking. The dog associates the annoying sounds with its barking and stops to avoid the irritating frequencies.
